a Fall garden? and other randomness!!!

Since our spring/summer garden went so well and our boys LOVED helping take care of it, we've decided a fall garden is definitely in the works! We know we want lettuce, broccoli, zucchini and squash...but what else?? Suggestions are greatly appreciated, especially if there's a certain fruit/veggie you've had success growing too :-)

My son's preschool will be having "Letter of the Week" and they must bring a show and tell item once a week, starting with that letter. I am planning on using some of these letters as health lessons as well. I'll let him choose any item, but I'll choose a health-related item with that letter as well! This way, I'm teaching a little of my MOST favorite subject as he moves along with the lesson plans at school! You know I gotta sneak health in there somewhere!! I am planning on using this last year of preschool, to help create some super healthy AND fun lunches for my boys! I want them to enjoy bringing their lunch to school...so I'll share some creative ideas I come up with along the way!

Today's Workout: 2 mile walk( yes WALK, it was too hot at 11am to get at a jogging pace) and a 30 minute yoga workout on Exercise TV. Can we say, BRING ON THE FALL WEATHER!!!

We usually grow pumpkins and then carve them at halloween. One year we grew giant pumpkins and that was really fun. But I think you have to plant them in the summer. So I guess I have no suggestions! Hope the weather gets nicer soon. I wouldn't even walk in that heat so I think you are doing pretty good!
